Smith: “New Series Madly Inventive”

Following news this weekend that the 2011 series will be broadcast in two parts (one in the Spring and the other in the Autumn) to allow for a cataylismic game changing twist to happen, Matt Smith has praised The Grand Moff’s ideas.

“I’m really looking forward to it. What Steven’s [Moffat] got planned is so madly inventive, it really is.”

Although like the rest of the Whoinverse Smith knows very little about the series or which guest stars will appear in it.

“It’s funny because I’m in a similar sort of position to the people that watch the show because I literally don’t know anything until I get the scripts.”

Smith is due to get his hands on those sacred pages in the next few days before filming commences soon – and he will also appear at one or all of the Wembley Arena shows of Doctor Who Live: The Monsters are Coming taking place between the 8th and 10th October.

For the rest of the tour the Doctor will be interacting with Vorgenson, a new character played by Nigel Planer (The Young One’s), who is described as the Greatest Showman in the Galaxy and the Doctors biggest fan, via video recordings.

In the production Vorgenson, who has been developed specially for the show by Steven Moffat, will use his incredible invention, ‘The Minimiser’, to make any Doctor Who character appear on stage as part of his travelling show dedicated to his hero.

Daleks, Silurians, Cybermen and many other beasts and baddies will be appearing before audiences across the UK along with a 16-piece orchestra playing music written by show composer Murray Gold.

Meanwhile, tickets for Doctor Who Live start at £38.50 while there are cheaper options at £34.50 or £25.00 – you can book for any of the nine venues here at Ticketmaster!

Hurry, they’re selling fast!

Matt Smith will next be on our screens as the Doctor in the upcoming Christmas special.

About the Author

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
